When you look for a diamond ring from a store, choosing one can be very difficult because there are various diamond shapes available. Each of these diamond shapes or cuts has different features and different prices. If you want to buy a diamond ring, you should know about the various diamond cuts in the market.
Here is the list of some of the best diamond cuts that you can choose for your engagement ring.
Round Cut Diamond
The most popular diamonds available in the market are round cut diamonds. They account for over 75% of all diamond sales. Round diamonds are often preferable to fancy shapes in terms of proper light reflection, and optimizing potential brightness, due to the mechanics of their shape.
Because the oval diamond is a redesigned brilliant-cut diamond, it has a similar fire and brilliance to the round diamond. Oval cut diamonds, on the other hand, have an elongated shape that might give the impression of greater size.
Princess Cut Diamond
The princess cut diamond is the most popular fancy diamond shape. Princess cut diamonds, like round cut diamonds, are popular because they may be used in practically any ring style.
The customized brilliant-cut pear-shaped diamond has a tapering tip on one end and is a blend of a round and a marquise form. The symmetry of a pear-shaped diamond should be excellent or very good. The point should be aligned with the rounded end’s apex. The shoulders and wings of the stone should have the same shape and be symmetrical.
Emerald Cut Diamond
Emerald cut diamonds produce a hall-of-mirrors look, with the interplay of light and dark planes, rather than the brilliance of a brilliant-cut diamond.
Cushion Cut Diamond
The cushion cut diamond has rounded corners and a square cut, similar to a pillow. This
popular diamond shape is nearly 200 years old, and it was the most popular for the first hundred years of its existence. A recent rise in popularity has been attributed to cut enhancements.
The marquise cut diamond is a modified brilliant-cut diamond with the shape of a football. The long and narrow shape of the marquise diamond can give the impression of greater size. The marquise diamond has one of the biggest surface areas of any diamond shape, carat for carat, making it a superb candidate for maximizing visual size.
